Callaway X12 irons

I was all set to bite the bullet and spend whatever it took to get fitted and buy new irons. A friend told me he had some old x12 irons he’d sell me for $75 bucks I grabbed them thinking I’d give them to my nephew. I regriped them and on a whim I took them out to try them.  Wow. I hit every shot where I envisioned it. I hit every par 3. They are 3 clubs longer than my old pings with dg s300 shafts. I think it has to be the Memphis 10 shaft that’s a little stiffer than regular it just fits me!  My nephew is getting the pings. Does anyone else still play the old callaway x12 or x14 irons?

They were made in 1998. Anika sorenstan won all her big victories as well as men with them. I think average golfers should compare themselves to the women pros because we will never approach the club speeds the men get to.   I like watching them swing too my wife calls it boner golf. Lol

I now play the X12 irons and couldn't be happier. The Memphis 10 shaft fits me perfectly and they feel as good as any iron that I have ever tried. I was going from iron to iron trying to find a set that I could be happy with. I remember having a set of X12 knockoffs years ago and played some pretty good golf with them, So out of desperation I bought a set of x12's about three months ago that were in very good condition off of ebay. I haven't shot above a 78 since I bought them. They are in the bag to stay.

I am 63 and still play X-14 irons. 5 thru sw. I've won quite a few local tournaments with them. They are hard to wear out. I sent them back to Callaway twice and they refurbish them to new. I played the x-12s for a few years before the 14s came out. 14s are better.
I just picked up a mint set of Ping ISI Nickel irons 2 thru lob wedge. I really wanted to play them but they aren't x14s. Lol  I do like the pitch and gap from the nickels though. I've had 3 holes in one with the Callaway's so I can't get rid of them. ha

Just got my set of used X-12's from Globabl Golf, have not even opened the box yet as I was wondering about what I did after my last round.  Disappointed with my round and a bit lit from the beer, I raged purchased these irons.  

Now however, I am kind of excited to go hit them.
